I had to jump on in:

Todd, religion does blow big sweaty moose nuts, but there has only been about 15 billion humans, alive or dead ever. God could not have killed trillions.

High Flow, no it's not worth it.

DoWhat?- "christian terrorists" ie, IRA and Tim McVeigh are just nice Irish boys. Move along sonny... but seriously, technically speaking the numbers are insignificant compared to jihadists. If you start calling crusaders and inquisitors terrorists then we need to include all the islamic conquerors and then we are comparing historic battles for terrority and modern murder and extortion, two equally horrific but seperate phenomenon.

Rastamon, you make me like Al Franken, nice.

Ssag, the whole patriot act and privacy stuff... I don't know what you guys were doing before it. But I always assumed someone was listening to all telecommunications and acted accordingly. We had codes for subversive behavior like cannibinal commerce, lysergical gatherings, etc. Never assume just because they were not coming out and saying they are listening doesn't mean they aren't. Stay safe, be careful, use code words. That's what the 2nd amendment is for, to protect the others from being taken away.


And Tim Mcveigh was a nerd too. And Jim Jones too.

Bill Cosby doesn't care about black people.

An atheist, like a Christian, holds that we can know whether or not there is a God. The Christian holds that we can know there is a God; the atheist, that we can know there is not. The Agnostic suspends judgment, saying that there are not sufficient grounds either for affirmation or for denial. At the same time, an Agnostic may hold that the existence of God, though not impossible, is very improbable; he may even hold it so improbable that it is not worth considering in practice. In that case, he is not far removed from atheism. His attitude may be that which a careful philosopher would have towards the gods of ancient Greece. If I were asked to prove that Zeus and Poseidon and Hera and the rest of the Olympians do not exist, I should be at a loss to find conclusive arguments. An Agnostic may think the Christian God as improbable as the Olympians; in that case, he is, for practical purposes, at one with the atheists.
